Biography Voltumna, hailing from central Italy, was forged in 2009 by Michele Valentini on guitars, joined by drummer Bruno Forzini, bassist Giovanni Tomassucci, and Simone Scocchera on vocals. Their mix of old school Death and Black Metal proved to set the right soundtrack for their lyrical themes, inspired by the myths and history of the Etruscan civilization. Voltumna released their first effort "Chimera" in 2011, recorded in Fear No One Studio, consisting of four tracks that strikingly introduced them into the italian extreme metal scene.

Voltumna subsequently intensified their live activity in Italy, while working on the songwriting of their upcoming full lenght. In summer 2012, the band enters Fear No One Studios again, teaming up with Paolo Pieri (Hour of Penance, Aborym) as music producer, to record their new effort called "Damnatio Sacrorum", consisting of 10 song of old school brutality.

The album has been released by UK label Cold Birth Records, while the band begins to tour around Europe and Russia opening for bands like Deicide, Taake and Carpathian Forest. In 2014, they start recording their second full-length called "Disciplina Etrusca", a further step forward into the black-death worldwide metal scene. Behold the rise of the etruscan war machine...
